Description de l’éditeur
An elegant and enlightening companion book for yoga practitioners.
This beautifully designed book invites readers to dis-cover the rich tradition of yoga through single pieces of wisdom-one for each day of the year. Filled with thought-provoking and inspiring quotations from the greatest yogic texts and yoga teachers throughout history, as well as invaluable instruction on specific poses, it is an essential resource and companion for anyone who practices yoga.
A celebration of the powerful ancient practice that is yoga, this book guides readers-day by day-through centuries of yogic philosophy. 365 Yoga infuses yoga practice with a deeper understanding of the intricate connection of mind, body, and spirit.
One of the goals of practicing yoga is finding a balance between action and reflection. Yogis attempting to achieve that objective will find a great helper in Rappaport's chubby little book of reflections, wherein the yoga teacher and writer shares ancient and modern texts that speak to the philosophy of yoga. The diverse collection includes thoughts from well-known sources such as the Bhagavad Gita; philosophers like Goethe; famous yogis including Sri Swami Satchidananda; and inspiring heroes from Mother Teresa to Gandhi to Edith Wharton. Rappaport also writes her own meditations on yoga, which are often matter-of-fact and serve as a welcome change from the sometimes complex and theoretical selections. Readers may opt to read one meditation a day, before or after practicing yoga, and Rappaport's helpful glossary will assist them in understanding such Sanskrit terms as anandatandava (eternal bliss) and mukti (freedom or release from suffering).
